There’s a whole lot to be said about a summer staycation or what many refer to as a “little day trip getaway” for a couple or the whole family. There are so many fun activities that can be done all within a day’s drive and you’re not out of all the additional money for extended travel and overnight stay, in addition to the dreads of packing and detailed planning. When you’re planning a staycation near Houston, all you need are some good walking shoes, comfortable clothes and a lot of energy so you can enjoy the day!
Double Movie Day
One thing about going to watch a movie at a theatre is that you’re forced to sit down and you don’t have all the added interruptions when trying to watch a movie at home. While trying to beat this summer heat, enjoying a movie in a cool theatre, especially in one of those new, comfortable recliners can be a treat! So consider rounding up the significant other and/or the kids and plan on watching one movie or even a catch a double feature.
Visit a Museum
Houston’s Health Museum has something for the whole family to enjoy and their mission is to empower healthy living. This unique museum offers a real-life journey through the human body. Not only is it entertaining, but it’s also educational. The Health Museum offers Free Family Thursday 2 PM – 7 PM and one of the many unique displays include a 22-foot-long backbone with ribs descending from the ceiling to the floor. This large backbone gives one the feeling of being inside a giant rib cage. So consider it as part of your staycation, a visit to Houston’s spectacular Health Museum.
Lunch or Dinner
Somewhere along the way, you’ll need to stop for a bite to eat. Whether it be for lunch or dinner, and depending on what area of Houston you’re in, at some point you may consider stopping in for a bite at Mod Pizza at The Junction at Deer Park shopping center. Their menu includes a variety of mouthwatering choices including personal artisan-style pizzas, salads, garlic strips and handspun milkshakes.
We Scream for Ice Cream
To round off the day, you might want to drop by Sub Zero Nitrogen Ice Cream to cool off before you head back home. Choose from a variety of eccentric flavors including Birthday Cake Capacitor, Magnetic Mint and more!
Enjoying the day to the fullest doesn’t mean you have to take an overnight trip somewhere and spend lots of cash. Getting up early and getting in the mindset that you’re going to enjoy yourself and the day locally can not only save you money but it can allow you to have a hassle free day away from the house and also a little mini vacation!
